Bactrim DS - What about a male yeast infection on the surface of the penis?

Answers (1)

Bactrim DS is an antibiotic. It won't treat a yeast infection, which is essentially a fungal infection. You need to use an antifungal agent. Even a topical antifungal agent should be sufficient.

Sorry the internet is very slow so can't seem to manage to get any links up ... I'll try to attach them later.
